Belated Birthday Wishes

Happy Hump Day Afternoon!

When I received my Simon Says Wednesday 'Birthday' Challenge notification,
I just had to jump in and play along.  I do have another card to 
share for the weekend for this challenge but a thought came to
mind for a card I really needed today so I'm multi-card-tasking you might say!!

Now you know why I needed it 'right away' ... yep forgot another birthday!  
Egads!  Where is my mind??

Simon Says has some fabulous word sentiment stamps and I 
love that this 'Thoughtful Messages' stamp set includes a 'belated'
stamp.  Seems I'm in need of that particular word stamp more & more these days!  LOL

Besides this fabulous sentiment stamp set, I have used a 'Party'
stencil (NBUS item) and TH oxide ink that was left over on the sponge applicators.

Quick ... Easy and kinda cute!!

Challenges to share in:
Always Happy Birthday April Challenge - Birthday ATG Option/Balloons 
Papercraft Business Challenge #5 - ATG option Birthday

Thanks for stopping by!
As always . . .

Hi Darlene, I love the CAS belated birthday card. I always find it hard to create a simple card but you've pulled this off with the fading inked balloons. I like how you scattered the sentiment too. Good job. Thank you for participating in our papercraft challenge & we hope you will join us again in the next one :)
